Is Drag Related to Gender? A queen's perspectives!

Drag is often related to gender because it involves the performance and expression of gender identity. Drag performers, dress up and adopt exaggeratedly personas, often to subvert traditional gender norms and expectations.

Drag is a form of gender expression that allows performers to explore and challenge gender roles creatively. Many drag performers see their art as a way to break down the boundaries between masculine and feminine and to celebrate the diversity of gender expression.

However, it is important to note that drag does not necessarily reflect the gender identity of the performer. Some drag performers identify as transgender or gender non-conforming, while others do not. Additionally, some people who are not drag performers may express their gender identity in a similar way through cross-dressing or other forms of gender expression.

Drag Academy’s Drag and Gender workshop \ explores drag, gender, and identity. In this 90-minute session, participants will explore the art of drag, gender and pronouns, dimensions of diversity and learn practical skills to reach for gender diversity and inclusion.
